Portnoy, who should have been gone already.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Yup.

Love them both, but DT hasn't been the same since MP left.

Portnoy. He may have had more of an influence on me with me being a drummer, but Petrucci IS Dream Theater.
People figured out that the white thing that comes out of cows' titties could be drunk, and the relation between sweet desires and women's bellies growing up for 9 months. It can't be THAT hard to figure out how a trumpet works.

But he DID leave.

And he wasn't allowed to come back. Not saying I blame the band for moving on but it's not like he didn't want to come back.

Portnoy, Petrucci is the soul of DT
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

He wasn't allowed back is a unique way to look at it. I know a band isn't just a job, but in what job can you leave, have your replacement hired, and then months later expect to be brought back because you want to return?

Point made, but to play devil's advocate, I'm almost positive JP was quoted as saying that the door was open for his return.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Within the first couple weeks after MP left.

If you say so, but I don't remember anything like that.  What I remember was an announcement to the effect that MP would be missed but the show must go on, and they almost immediately started making preparations for the future.
